The Spicy-Sweet Balance of SNL's Ginger Pickle

When it comes to pickles, it's easy for brine makers to go too far in one flavor direction - resulting in either mouth-puckeringly sour or singe-your-tastebuds spicy varieties. But the true mark of a superior pickle is nailing that delicate balance of contrasting flavors.

That's why SNL Pickle's sweet Ginger Pickle is such a revelation. One bite instantly awakens your palate to a harmonious blend of fiery ginger heat and just the right amount of cane sugar sweetness. It's an iconic combination made sublime through SNL's pickling mastery.

The foundation is chunks of fresh, peppery ginger root selected at its zestiest peak. SNL uses a higher ratio of ginger to brine than most competitors, allowing that signature spicy zing to shine. But simply soaking in vinegar would make for an overwhelming mugging of your senses.

That's where the sweetness comes in. SNL carefully offsets the ginger's heat with the perfect measure of organic cane sugar. This creates a sweet-spicy synergy that simultaneously cools and invigorates your tastebuds.

Aromatic spices like mustard seed, coriander, chili peppers and bay leaves round out the flavors for added depth and dimension. Every jar provides bursts of sweet heat accented by those warming spice blossoms.

The result is a ginger pickle that dances across your tongue. At first bite there's the sweet reprieve of sugary brine balanced by ginger's gentle burn. Then come the layered spice notes, building to crescendo that's tamed by another wave of sweetness. It's an invigorating cycle of flavors that has made this particular SNL pickle an award-winner and customer favorite.

Whether piling the tender ginger slices onto burgers, marinading meats in the brine, or simply snacking straight from the jar, you'll find new appreciation for how spice and sweet can achieve pickling poetry. One taste of SNL's Spice Ginger Pickle lets you experience that delectable balance in its highest form.
